RE: Flywheel Lightening
I recently did a 4kq Fly wheel at a shop in town for a lister in
trade for some parts. Anyhow, it cost me aobut $130 if memeory serves not
including the balancing which he is goig to have done with the clutch and
after the motor is balanced. Anyhow, balancing was like $30 more. But
that said, the weight after lightening was 18.5lbs. Thats a little over
5lbs from what it was stock. I think 24 is about stock and thats what i
saw and they took off 5 but it actually ended up being a tad more. Any
more than 5 lbs would require some serious changes as they took off a LOT
of material and more I think would require lots of drilling and maybe
turnign it into a flat Face wheel instead of dished. (I dont know if this
can be done)
anyhow, good luck.
I have the flywheel off my CGT to replace the rear oil seals, and
figured now would be a good time to get it lightened & balanced. What
is the reasonable range of costs for this work?
